The Absolute Best
In 2020 I found myself in need of a divorce attorney after a 25-year relationship and marriage. I am not young and following a 35-year professional career had accrued significant assets that required protection on my behalf throughout this process. I began my search and found Feron Poleon LLP. What impressed me most about their website information was that they spoke about just of their client’s financial well-being. I met for consultation with Katie Poleon and knew immediately that I had found the right attorney. After 18 long, contentious months, a negotiated settlement was finally reached. Through that process, Katie demonstrated nothing other than the highest standards of legal professionalism. She is astute in her knowledge of the law as it applied to my individual circumstances. She maintained a thorough, concise, competent, and rational approach leaving "no stone unturned". But finally, unlike other attorneys, she continually provided me clear perspective regarding the nuances of my case, eliminating the often emotional responses that prevent settlement and closure. Katie is an amazingly hard working attorney dedicated to the best interests of her clients. It was because of her knowledge, skill, and ability that a settlement was reached that I can fully accept and will provide me with the financial resources to comfortably live the remainder of my life. I am able me to move on without regret. Ms. Poleon is worth her weight in gold. I cannot thank or recommend her and her staff enough for all that's been accomplished on my behalf.

Above and beyond
Katie brought me through a horrendous, tumultuous divorce while I was dealing with serious medical issues. My ex wished I would die. She truly had my best interest at the forefront. Katie covered everything and left no stone unturned. I am still here and am setup to live a long life comfortably. I highly recommend her to all who truly needs a highly competent and supportive attorney

Thank goodness there are honest lawyers
My family was so happy to find Katie! We had a lawyer previous to her who was supposed to be helping us with a custody case. He took our money & did next to nothing. He gave us poor advice & almost ruined my daughter's life. Thanks to Katie, all that is behind us and our case is going 100% better! Thanks Katie!
